Green Marathon

The organisation team of the Mainova Frankfurt Marathon has been committed to sustainable event management for many years.

The activities in the field of sustainable sporting events already started in 2005 when sustainability was not yet “en vogue”. The efforts are characterised by close cooperation with the “Rhine-Main Environmental Forum” and the Environmental Office of the City of Frankfurt am Main.


The declared goal? A largely sustainable Mainova Frankfurt Marathon, as well as the promotion of environmental protection at all sporting events.


Already in 2014, the Mainova Frankfurt Marathon was awarded the “Green Award” for the world’s most environmentally friendly marathon by AIMS, the Association of International Road Running Organisers.


Every year, the Mainova Frankfurt Marathon becomes a little greener – with its numerous environmentally and climate-friendly measures, the Mainova Frankfurt Marathon is a pioneer among running events.

Runners can also contribute to a sustainable running event. In order to achieve our goals, we also need the support of our participants, for example in the areas of travel or waste separation.
